Dr. James Rice will present on Bacon’s Rebellion April 15th, 2017

On Saturday, April 15th 2017 between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m., Tufts University professor Dr. James Rice will present on Bacon’s Rebellion and his book, Tales from a Revolution: Bacon’s Rebellion and the Transformation of Early America. This under-told story of Virginia’s first major rebellion has a rich and complicated history with long-reaching implications for modern society.

In 1676, Nathaniel Bacon led a rebellion against royalist forces under Royal Governor Sir William Berkely. After years of frustrating policies, taxes, practices, perceptions, and circumstances, Bacon’s Rebellion resonated well with his allies. The composition of the rebel forces made this rebellion the last of its kind to be seen in Virginia as African, European, and Native Americans allied together to fight against the establishment.
